Chiropractic as a part of complementary medicine is a health care profession dedicated to the non-surgical treatment of disorders of the nervous system and/or musculoskeletal system. According to the General Chiropractic Council, chiropractic is "a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health".

Generally, chiropractors maintain a unique focus on spinal manipulation and treatment of surrounding structures, which means that chiropractors use their hands to treat disorders of the bones, muscles and joints. They use a range of manipulation techniques. Some chiropractors may also offer other treatments, such as acupuncture, and advice on diet, exercise and lifestyle, and rehabilitation programmes that involve exercises to do in your own time.
